Now, BEFORE we mount anything, one should check their HID's to see if they work. I fired up my truck and well, the passenger side one worked but the drivers side did not. Bloody hell......let's see what went wrong.

Connections all secure....check.
Grounds secure.....check.
Bulbs secure.....check.

What could it be? Well, as it turns out, I switched the ballasts to the opposite sides (driver and passenger) by unplugging them only and voila, both lights now work perfectly! No noise or static from the stereo as some have reported, and no noise from the ballasts either. Man, these HID's sure are bright though! The fogs have GOT to be changed ASAP, because....boy, do they ever suck compared to the new lighting. The only thing I can think that might have caused one HID to not light initially is that sometimes HID's don't come on at the same time, especially when new, and it takes a few cycles of turning the lights on for a period of time and then off to "burn them in".

Now we need to mount our ballast boxes, ballast control boxes, and relay box. First clean the engine bay surfaces you want the velcro pads to stick to. Simply cut to size and attach your industrial velcro to the backs of the areas where you want to mount plus the back of the boxes and then stick the boxes in their locations. Here are where I mounted mine for each side from a suggestion from a fellow member earlier in this thread:

Drivers side ballast with box:




Relay control box:




Passenger side ballast and control box:



Next, just zip tie your loose wires together. You might have to unplug a few and untwist them as they tend to get wrapped around other wires, but just play with bundling both sides out of the way how you like and you're good to go.

Needless to say, the lights work flawlessly, and look absolutely incredible.



Enjoy your new HID's, and thanks Slimcubby!








Slimcubby seams a good site and a good product, have you had any problems after installation?
Thanks
